Probate Lawsuits Are Complex; Call Our Versatile Litigators | Montgomery County Will Contest Lawyers

Probate lawsuits can arise for many reasons. Parties may believe an executor or fiduciary has disregarded the terms of a will or trust. Other times, they may allege an administrator exerted undue influence upon a vulnerable family member in order to extract money or benefit from that person's estate. Sometimes, parties file lawsuits because they believe they have been passed over, or written out of, a loved one's will.

Every probate lawsuit is different, but parties to any probate lawsuit can benefit from the assistance of an experienced and knowledgeable probate attorney at Martin Folino. Retain our lawyers, and we can establish the facts and argue your case effectively, in court, or privately through negotiations or alternative dispute resolution processes, including mediation and arbitration.

You can count on us to listen to your concerns, examine the evidence and devise a strong legal strategy to reach your objectives, whether you are pursuing a probate lawsuit or defending against one.
